From what I can tell, little has changed from last year. Traffic into the festival is thick and poorly organized, not as bad as last year but still poor. Hopefully things get better.. These security searches are a joke as well.. Completely over the top and unnecessary. O well .. **** happens and it's what I expected. Can't wait for some Taj Mahal tonight tho!!!!

Hey benulliman!

I'm hitting the road in a couple or three hours. Any other updates on the scene, especially traffic, will be appreciated.

Per my daughter, FWIW, around 9:00 a.m. Central time:

"No true at all! We got in in 45 mins... Compared to 5 hours last year"

well we had problens with spacing... Car camping is supposed to have 450 square feet and we are defiantly way under that.. Took about an hour from when the line actually started moving, but other than that there are great people here and it is a great environment... Just saw Jeff sipe and got his autograph

Lockn' has been smooth as silk for me. I scored an arm band to take the shuttle from my hotel so today should be even easier than yesterday.

Umphrees played a massive "Shine On You Crazy Diamond".
Kool and the Incident was fun... better for the first songs before JT Taylor (from Kool and the Gang) came out. When it was just SCI and Preservation Jazz Band Horns they really played an experimental "Jungle Boogie" and "Celebration". JT came out with sequined back up singers and, in my mind, it went a little too Vegas.

Stand out by far was Lettuce. Alecia joined the band for 4 tunes. She was wearing a black tee with Farmer's face emblazoned across the front. He was shooting two birds and in bold across the bottom it read: FARMER!

She dedicated one of the songs to, "a friend." It was heartfelt, poignant and beautiful.

The Lockn' scene is really outstanding. The two stages "locked" together is pure genius. One band ends and the other begins. The sound is the same in front of both stages. You choose the stage where you want your best sightlines and enjoy the show.

Everything, so far, is really smooth.

Thanks for the report. Some of the "getting in" problems from last year definitely - plus distance - made me choose Peach this year

I saw someone with a cool electric three wheel scooter getting around easier than me today Alan. The area is basically flat. I've not noticed handicapped areas but I'll make a mental note tomorrow to check it out.

I am really impressed with the sound system, the "interlocked" stages and performances, the food, and the fun. Although a young festival it has been an exercise in professionalism.

Although my pocket knife was confiscated at the gate. I had walked over to get some pictures of Kesey's bus. Upon re-entry I emptied my pockets and there it was.

I ought to sue.
